Pinch Zoom in ios app built with ionic

Hi All,

I have a very basic question.

If we built a basic one page html iOS app with no dynamic updates and i am using the built in UIWebView feature only.

Will the pinch and zoom not work by default. Or do we have to do something for this to work. What is the best practice on create a ionic app for ios that will have all these standard features in.

As of now i have tried to create a fresh app also and the pinch and zoom does not seem to work.

Has anyone else encountered this issue.

Please help in understanding this issue and do let me know if there is any solution for this issue.


It seems you can make it somehow work by changing some meta tags in the head of your index.html, viewport maybe?


I did try that, but to no luck.

Below is my viewport settings

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=0.9, user-scalable=yes, width=device-width">
